“Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you've changed, by believing. Once you've changed, other things start to follow. Isn't that the way it works?” ― Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

Madeleine Walker - Wisdom from the Animals, Elementals and Guardian Spirits

"What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected." - Chief Dan George

Madeleine Walker - Animal Communicator

I really enjoy connecting with Madeleine. We've talked before. A grand adventure she is living in her travels and explorations of world cultures and our interconnected animal relations.

Ranging from exploring past and present life connections of people and their companion animals, in an An Exchange of Love, to sharing the beautiful gift of deeper inspiration in The Whale Whisperer, her insight and message continues to evolve and resonate.

Here's an introduction to Madeleine and her work - via YouTube

We are one with all that is. And if we so choose to open our hearts and grow our awareness we can hear the wisdom of the co-creators on our planet and benefit in awakening to a higher knowing.

Unity: The Power of the Animal Kingdom to Guide You Home, her newest book is designed to help engage that higher knowing and offers unique methods for self-healing and shifting realities to manifest loving re-connection to upgrade our knowing and engage higher consciousness in our daily interactions with our fellow Earth residents.

To that effect, she includes Elementals and others from the Non-Corporeal world who share with us a common chord of seeking healing for our wounded creation.

Guardians of Gaia: Earth Keeper Whales and Dragon Oracle Cards are beautifully designed and can be a helpful assist in drawing upon a complimentary energy to help clarify intention and thought.

I asked Madeleine to share with me her intention in creating these special cards. 

Her reply: "The precious energy blessings and frequencies of these cards, offer an opportunity for humankind to realign and to connect with the guardians to help heal our beloved Mother Earth and ourselves, so we can all be Earthkeepers!"

As you use and incorporate the cards into an ongoing practice, you can affect change for yourself and the planet. We talked about the many connections she has made through the course of her travels, the urgency of the messages, the sincerity in the engagement from the animals  and the challenging process in getting this newest book to the shelf.

Madeleine gave a few relevant oracle messages as we spoke. I was delighted to hear the connection with Dragon. I also told her about my own extraordinary (non-ordinary) experiences. We have more in common than we realize and in every meeting more dots connect.

Madeleine has several meditation CDs and her voice is the perfect compliment for delivery of the inspired messages. Order on her website.

Flood Relief for Pets/ HSMO FYI

 “A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.” - Ernest Hemingway

A word on flood recovery efforts in Missouri (2017). Pet temporary shelter drop-off locations closed on May 3 and are no longer open but temporary shelter is still available for those affected by recent flooding in Missouri - details and phone number at HSMO

From 2015. A reminder of the work rescuers do in helping to track down displaced pets. This team heard muffled noises coming from inside a trailer and hurried to find the source. How incredible to discover this cat survived by floating in her litter box. Extraordinary.

This disaster team rescued four cats by boat on the afternoon of December 31, 2015.

In North Carolina, the following video is an overview of how groups come together in a crisis to locate, recover and care for displaced animals. This scenario is an example of the deteriorating site conditions often presenting health challenges to survivors (and rescuers) and showcases the hazards and the teamwork involved in disaster pet rescue efforts: YouTube

In that video, you saw Eric Thompson and the Code 3 Disaster Response Team - If you are interested in finding out more about the organization follow up here: Code 3

Also part of the effort: Red Star Rescue Team - American Humane

Everybody gets a Kitten! Sing along!

“It is a very inconvenient habit of kittens (Alice had once made the remark) that whatever you say to them, they always purr.” - Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There 

Put a little 'cheery' in your day. Block the news stream and hum along. After listening a couple of times you'll want to chime in on the chorus. You get to say 'Kitten' ...

Props to Selby and Dan on the cover version ...

Oh, the Angst - Downward Dog is a riot!

“When animals express their feelings they pour out like water from a spout. Animals' emotions are raw, unfiltered, and uncontrolled. Their joy is the purest and most contagious of joys and their grief the deepest and most devastating."
The Emotional Lives of Animals by Marc Bekoff Goodreads

So maybe it's really more about how a human might cope with the confined space of animal being but - it works. And it's entertaining. Downward Dog, the series is coming up on ABC. Here's hoping it will be just as endearing.

Setting the tone, the web inspiration video teaser. Spoiler: Doesn't end well for the fish.
We dive right into the story -- Birthday number 7 is coming up ...

and so it goes ...

Oh yeah, details here: I've worked for Eddie Bauer for 7 plus years. That brown coat Nan wears in the cold snowy portion of the vid - Eddie Bauer Lodge Down Parka. Perfect. See for yourself: Here.
My warmest coat. I have the longer version. (Duffle.)

When it's cold, the dogs just look at me like, "Really? You AREN'T taking us for a walk? Hater."

Exactly. So, I put on the coat, the gloves, the headband, the boots, the leggings, the 'guide pro' pants and the scarf, the hat and the heated hand warmers and head to the park. LOL.

The fish and the turtle and the cat guard the house. Dogs don't know BAD weather, it's just outside and that's where they rule the world.

Cold where you are? Don't shiver. Been there. Eddie Bauer.

Animal Insight - Emotions, Intelligence, Communicators, Links and Connections

The cow is valuable to the dairy farmer for the money it can make, but the cow has her own value to herself, because life is worth living.” - Dr. Jonathan Balcombe, The Exultant Ark: A Pictorial Tour of Animal Pleasure

Do animals have emotions? Absolutely, no doubt. Follow up on that at here: Sharing Emotional Worlds on the blog for Thinking Animals United

And if you would like to explore more in depth our connection with animals, try these:

Reviews for these books are available on GoodReads.

Ex: In the Company of Animals: "I would definitely recommend this book to any animal-lover as a tool of self analysis and anyone with misgivings on hunting. This is not just another vegan propaganda book."

Wendy's Coffeehouse on Talk Radio KCMO has changed times and dates for 2017. And that has taken a bit more effort to re-launch (blog) and redirect my content but I've got it running now and intend to check back in here too when I have updated topics and guests.

Jack/Wendy in the cove. He wears a life vest
and leash on our lake tours.
Saved him more than once from
a whole body dunking.
He likes to chase bubbles from the waves.
While my Talk Radio focus always highlights a broad range of beyond-mainstream-metaphysical, PSI
and consciousness topics,
I also continue to keep an eye open
for fresh content related to animal issues,
sites and links that help publicize
and increase awareness about animal consciousness and
Animal Communicators.

I recently revisited a site with active and current links available in association with Fate Magazine.

My Grandmother got me hooked on Fate when I was about 9 years old. Sick days were spent holed up in the make-shift attic bedroom at Gramma's with a stack of mags.

The body might have needed a rest but the mind was on fire, out exploring other worlds and dimensions. "What if?" and "Do you believe?" Those questions were the catnip for great imagining.

I am re-posting contacts for a few Animal Communicators I have interviewed here:

Rosalyn Berne - Interspecies Communication/Horses
Amelia Kinkade - Animal Communication

Tim Link Facebook - Talking Cats and Dogs
Sue Pike - Communicating with Animals - Blog

Madeleine Walker - Pets Past Lives
Marta Williams - My Animal, Myself

Marta offers a few suggestions on how you can try to talk with your pets.

My Interview links (audio) are posted on the side bar or search the name and Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett (Empower Radio).

Now for a state by state listing with more names and links, here's a link to the Fate Magazine Animal Communicators list.

While you can get information without having an up close and personal session, it's nice to know about those who are in your area too. The list is a start. If you can recommend or have positive feedback to offer on any of those listed, I will add it and expand the post.

Animals are tremendous teachers. Any effort one can make to expand awareness and engagement with them, their unique consciousness and their qualities of navigating this incredible reality is in our favor.

Email me with your comments and or suggestions of those to include on a list and I can add it on a future post(s).  -- lite 4 one @ aol.com

Suggest: Name, contact, website, testimonial and or reference. Book, if available.

Coming up in a month or two, still confirming the best date, I will be interviewing my Fate Magazine contact who can help me to update and expand this content (permissions, etc).
